1 – In the beginning (in 2009) there was the Charlottesville Pie Down – an afternoon of ridiculously good fun. And Pie.
2 – And then there was the Pie Fest in Crozet – a Pie contest that benefitted PACEM.
3 – This year, the Charlottesville Pie Down has evolved into a more structured Charlottesville Pie Fest that will again benefit PACEM and will be held at the Haven in Downtown CharlottesvilleÂ on 22 October.Â And yes, there will be pie, pie and more pie.
St. Louis Working Mom describes this year’s Pie Fest thusly:
WHAT: The 2011 C’ville Pie Fest is free, public event of pie auctions, pie judging and a pie baking competition. Pies must be registered by Wednesday, October 19 to be entered into competition. Bakers of all ages are encouraged to enter the judged pie competition.
New to the 2011 Pie Fest is a live competition. The top pie makers will compete live at the Pie Fest to determine who can make the best pie. Also new to Pie Fest is the addition of a â€œproâ€ category.
Restaurants and bakeries are encouraged to enter as a business, rather than as an individual baker, providing the business with the opportunity to market itself through the event.
The Cville Pie Fest is on Facebook, too.
